Tim Thomas – 244 Pineywoods Lane – Home Occupation License (copy of letter of request becomes part of minutes) Mr. Thomas was present at the meeting to answer any questions the Mayor and Council may

have. Jerry Pate related to Mr. Thomas that the City had been having problems in the contracting business that had obtained a home occupation business license but we realize that you have to get started somewhere; emphasized no signs for advertisement as the residence, only employee at residence, etc.

Mr. Pate asked Mr. Thomas as estimated time structure for operating from his residence.

Mr. Thomas replied &8220;until the business grows&8221;.

Barbara Hyche asked the name of the business and Mr. Thomas replied &8220;Yellow Hammer Deck & Fence&8221;. Ms. Hyche responded then you have a partner, right.

Mr. Thomas stated that he would have a partner but he was setting the business up as a sole proprietorship until a license and everything is obtained and then he will become a limited liability company. Ms. Hyche related to Mr. Thomas that when we ask if you are going to be storing equipment, supplies, etc. at the residence, this applies to Mr. Trey Newman at 153 Roy Court and his residence as well. Mr. Thomas replied there would be no equipment stored at the residences, we have a storage/warehouse facility; we do not have any large equipment such as backhoes, bobcats, etc., our equipment is nail guns, etc. Ms. Hyche asked about supplies. Mr. Thomas replied the supplies will be purchased and picked up as need. No storage at the residence. Katherine Ennis then said if you have left over pieces of lumber, etc. it cannot be stacked up along the side of your residence or garage. Mr. Thomas related these types of items would go to the storage/warehouse facility. Ms. Ennis also related concerns of trailers or extra vehicles at the residence, one vehicle with the business name is fine, and multiples in the driveways are not. The City is having a problem with the contractors having a home based business and is trying to get a handle on it, if we are going to continue to allow contractors to work for their homes, we will have to put some limitations on what they can do. We want you to be real careful, other than the fact that a truck being parked in your driveway with the name of your business on it, nobody will

know that you are running a business from your residence. Jerry Pate related that we (the City) had not required it in the past, but are considering putting a one year limitation on these types of businesses located in their residence and then you would have to come back before the Council with reasoning as to why you have been unable to get into

a regular commercial building.

There being no further questions and/or comments, Mayor Penhale entertained a motion.

Katherine Ennis made a motion to approve the home occupation license, subject to the one (1) year time frame, will need to come back to City Council before license renewal, if you have not found a business site, and with all stipulations stated in terms of storage on site with a second by Jerry Pate and the following votes were cast: AYE: Charles W. Penhale, Katherine Ennis, Barbara Hyche and Jerry Pate.

NAY: None. Motion carried.

Lanny Smartt – Cahaba Lily Subdivision – Preliminary Plat Approval (5 lots Plus

Commercial Frontage) with stipulations from the Helena Planning & Zoning Commission meeting 4/26/2007. Lanny Smartt was present at the meeting for any questions and/or comments. Katherine Ennis stated that Mr. Smartt was already aware of her concerns from the P&Z meeting but would like to state them again for the record thereof.

Lot 6 (closest to Highway 52 West) is planned to be commercial and Mr. Smartt has ensured her there would be a substantial buffer along the back of this lot, and of course these are very large lots, this should not be an issue but

when the residents are spending this type of monies for property to build this type of house, we want to make sure they are protected, plus with our experience recently with the Walgreens site, we want to make sure we don&8217;t have to repeat that in terms of there not being enough depth for a reasonable commercial use to appear on. Jerry Pate related to Mr. Smartt as these lots are sold that the purchasers are made aware of this frontage being commercial use. Katherine Ennis stated the commercial needed to be very obviously posted, even on the site itself, &8220;proposed commercial or future commercial&8221;, so that potential buyers are made aware of this commercial use. We (the City) want to make sure that when you do have a commercial site and when you come back in for site plan approval there will not be a problem for us to approve

it, such as adequate space, adequate buffering, etc. Lanny Smartt stated that his Covenants were very thorough, so anyone purchasing a lot will not be able to say they were not aware of this commercial usage on Lot 6. Mayor Penhale asked Lanny Smartt if he was going to try and develop the commercial on this site. Lanny related to Mayor Penhale that he had not as yet made up his mind, will leave as is, does not have plans of selling it or developing it until sewer is available; when that occurs is

anyone&8217;s guess. Mayor Penhale asked if there were any further questions and/or comments from the Council or audience. George Pickle related to the Mayor and Council that he would like to make sure that the same stipulation from the Planning and Zoning and that was that before construction starts, as far as

the development process, that Mr. Smartt gets his construction drawings in with the changes. Mr. Smartt replied that is absolutely no problem and should have the drawings next week. There being no further comments, Mayor Penhale entertained a motion. Jerry Pate made a motion to approve Cahaba Lily Subdivision Preliminary Plat (5 Lots plus Commercial on Frontage) with the stipulations outlined by George Pickle with a second by Barbara Hyche and the following votes were cast: AYE: Charles W. Penhale, Katherine Ennis, Barbara Hyche and Jerry Pate. NAY: None. Motion carried.

Barbara Hyche stated then it does not adjoin this property and Mr. Haffenden replied &8220;it does not, no&8221;. Jerry Pate asked if there was anyone else present at the meeting that had property adjacent to this property on County Road 93 that has anything they would like to say, for or against this rezone. There was no one else present at the meeting for or against this rezone.
